Fraizer Campbell came on for his England debut on Wednesday at exactly the same time as he became a dad.
The Sunderland striker climbed off the bench late on in England's 3-2 friendly defeat by Netherlands at Wembley with the pain of a last-gasp defeat cushioned by news of the birth.
"Delighted to earn my first international cap and the very same moment I became a dad to Isla rose campbell! #cloud9," he wrote on Twitter.
The day was extra special for the 24-year-old given he only recently returned to match action after an 18-month layoff following a knee injury.
